Leading up to Christmas – Day 7

<– Day 6                                              Day 8 –>

Helaman 14:12

“And also that ye might know of the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and of earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning;

and that ye might know of the signs of his coming, to the intent that ye might believe on his name.”

God’s prophet’s primary purpose is to bring us to Christ.  The better we know Jesus Christ, the more we can pattern our life after His and, in some small way, understand His love for us that we might believe Him.  Prophets from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible and from the Book of Mormon have told of the coming of Christ and what that will mean to all people on the earth.  As I study all those scriptures I can piece together a more full image of who Jesus Christ is and why He subjected himself to the flesh.

A few more Book of Mormon references from King Benjamin, Abinadi and Jesus Christ himself give us insight into who He is: Mosiah 3:8, 15:2-4, 3 Nephi 9:15, Ether 4:17
